The urban district (Vietnamese: quận Chữ nôm: (郡)) is a second-level administrative subdivision in Vietnam. Other kinds of second-level administrative subdivision of Vietnam are the rural district (huyện), the provincial cities (thành phố trực thuộc tỉnh), and the town (thị xã). Urban districts can only subordinate to the centrally-controlled municipalities. The urban district is subdivided into wards (phường).

Before 1975, in South Vietnam, all second-level administrative subdivisions were called districts (quận), regardless of urban or rural areas. For example, quận Châu Thành, Vĩnh Long Province is in the urban area of present Vĩnh Long city, and quận Trà Ôn was the rural area of present Vĩnh Long Province.

As of December 31, 2008, Vietnam had 46 urban districts.[1] Ho Chi Minh City with 19 urban districts had the most. Cần Thơ City with five urban districts had the fewest.
